here. we just learned that u.n. chief moon says the u.n. will conduct an investigation into the alleged chemical weapons use in syria. earlier this week syrian government and rebels accused each other of launching a deadly chemical attack, but there is no confirmation of those allegations. if true, it would be the first use of such weapons in the conflict. as the president said in israel yesterday, the use of chemical weapons is a game-changer. >>> the pentagon is considering plans for $150 million overhaul of the guantanamo bay detention facility. according to facilities, the multimillion dollar plan would include building a new dining hall, hospital and barracks for the guards. the proposal comes amid mounting signs of frustration from gitmo detainees. u.s. military officials confirm that the number of hunger strikes have tripled over the last two weeks from seven to 25. officials say no lives are in danger, but do acknowledge detainees are growing more frustrated. >> the detainees had -- and their attorneys presumably had great hope that the facility would be closed. and they were pa
had 20 years of direct dialogue. it's never happened. the key for the u.n. so critical for palestinians is they could take their state hood to the international criminal court and get a directive on the international human rights issue and preoccupation an president obama said no. >> given what the professor has indicated, do you think there's any possibility obama makes any progress. if all the conditions ex-exist for successful negotiations for peace, does it bolster israelis there and america sympathizers with israel and also want to see a broader push for palestinian rights to be acknowledged? >> i think what we saw today was, yes, this remains a key item on the president's foreign agenda. there were real questions whether he would weigh in on this. the answer is, yes. there are a number of questions given the breakdown and trust that occurred between israelis and palestinians in the past few years. the palestinian authority is in dire need of support, seen its credibility wane with its own people in relation to hamas. what will happen is secretary kerry will look f
. we have called for and we know that the u.n. is moving forward on investigation of what happened. we're monitoring the situation ourselves. i have said publicly that the use of chemical weapons by the assad regime would be a game-changer from our perspective. because once you let that situation spin out of control, it's very hard to stop and can have enormous spillover effects across the region. and so we are going to continue to closely consult with everybody in the region and do everything we can to bring an end to the bloodshed and to allow the syrian people to get out of a leader who has lost all legitimacy because he is willing to slaughter his own people. and i'm confident that assad will go, it's not a question of if, it's when. and so part of what we have to spend a lot of time thinking about is what's the aftermath of that. and how does that work in a way that actually serves the syrian people. and by the way, serves the syrian people from all walks of life. from all religious affiliations. because one of the things we know is happening in this region is that if we fail to c
the u.n. general assembly, an american secret service agent accidently discharged the shotgun in the direction of the iranian leader as he was getting into his motorcade in new york. the close call, quote, scared the hell out of u.s. officials who would worried ahmadinejad might use it against them. he never mentioned it again. mysterious. >>> ahead in our money lead without my dedicated twitter followers what would i do with my day? maybe accomplish something. it's twitter's birthday, my tweets. to celebrate i sit down with the hacker turned ceo behind it all. >>> plus, our pop lead. word on the street is that the suits at nbc are showing jay leno the exit. what does abc's jimmy kimmel thing about the soon-to-be out of work comedian? >> i do think he's capable. i've seen him. i mean, listen. the guy is one of the great comedians. >> you think he's dumbed down his material? >> yeah, i think so. that's fair to say. this is america. we don't let frequent heartburn come between us and what we love. so if you're one of them people who gets heartburn and then treats day after day..
look good for a press release to be able to say you're getting some progress in the u.n. but the only way we're going to be able to achieve that two-state solution is through direct negotiations. >> abbas has also threatened to report israel to the international criminal court for human rights violations. do you think that overall that this trip is really a lot about sort of managing relationships more than solving problems? >> well, i think the relationships are extremely important. if the palestinians went to the international criminal court, that would set back, i think, the prospects for peace and the two-state solution. i think the president will make that clear. but i do think establishing the personal relationships, talking to the people, very important. the united states will play a critical role and those personal relationships could take you a long way. >> senator ben cardin, always good to see you. thank you for coming on the program. matt, do you have a sense of what the white house would consider a successful trip? >> that's an interesting question. i think if he gets goo
eastern countries but in terms of world opinion. look at the vote in the u.n. when we made every single effort possible to discourage countries from voting in favor of palestinian membership in the u.n. how many votes out of 190, out of 190 did we get? we found only seven countries to support us. this tells us something. and, therefore, we have to be very, very clear inning on ourselves what are our interests, how do we promote them? and we make it clear to the israelis on decisions of war and peace that involve us, namely, particularly in regards to iran, we are the ones who make the decisions. >> senator coons, a fairly interesting appearing yesterday of two united states senators, john mccain and carl levin of michigan in urging the administration to consider tougher steps with regard to syria. and when you hear repeatedly the phrase about chemical weapons perhaps being used in syria, the shadow of iraq seems to come back to many people. weapons of mass destruction. what is your sense within the united states senate right now about that shadow that got us into iraq lurking over any p
